A reminder that GSB has raffle tickets that help us to defer the cost associated with the Championship shoot and if you’d like a chance to win either a $750 shopping credit with Big Al’s or $500 cash, you’d better buy your tickets soon. The drawing will be held at the Championship Shoot at 12 noon, June 8th.
On Sunday, June 8th, 2014, Granite State Bowhunters will hold our State Championship Shoot. The event will be held at the Stateline Field and Stream Club in South Hampton, NH. Event registration will commence at 7:00 A.M.. All registered competitors MUST be ready to enter the course by 10 A.M. without exception. Registration will require your GSB Membership card for 2014 be presented at the time of registration. Shooting fees will be $15 per competitor. Youth, Cub and FBH classes shoot for free but, these minors MUST shoot with a parent throughout the entire event.
Groups will be shooting the course as follows:
MBO, MBR, FBRO, FHC and MHC will be required to shoot the “first” 15 targets, as instructed by the Range Officer, representing their first loop.
SNR, MSNR, RHC, TLRW, TLRU and FTLRU will be directed to shoot the “second” 15 targets of the course for their first loop.
Youth, Cub and FBH will be directed by the Range Officer on the morning of the Shoot.
These groups will then be sent out to the opposing half of the course for the second half of the event. Shooters MUST shoot the half as directed, therefore if you usually shoot with persons that have been assigned to the other half of the course, you will not be able to shoot your first half with them this week and need to be prepared to enter the course with other archers. There will be no groups smaller than three archers without the direct consent of the Range Officer.
State Shoot competitors will shoot ONE half of the 30 target course as determined by the Range Officer and as listed in the paragraphs above. The assignment as to which classes will shoot which half of the course first is intended to keep the whole course full, reducing backups.
ALL first half scores MUST be turned in by noon. This means scores must be totaled before you arrive at the table from the first half of the shoot. These scores will be used to group the classes for the second half of the event. The scores from the first half will be dropped and shooters will be issued two cards for second half scoring (final scoring).
The second half of the event will begin at the descretion of the Club Officers and participants must be ready when called or face disqualification. Groups will consist of three to five competitors within the same shooting class, although the Club may release mixed or oversized groups if it is necessary to promote consistent group sizes.
Final scoring cards (double cards) are to be compared, totaled and signed by participants before being presented at the registration table upon completion of the second 15 target loop. Scores may be reviewed by Club Officers or GSB Board Members prior to final acceptance.
Keep in mind that your first half scoring is dropped and only used to promote peered groups for the second (scoring) half of the event, therefore, all scores MUST be totaled before noon. Whether you shoot 5, 10 or 15 targets on the first half, you will be shooting the second half of the event.
Non-competing archers are still welcome and may shoot for a straight $10 fee, but you must respect the competitors on the course not interfere with these sportsmen and women.
